The Fox's are for the most part from England in the 16th an 17th century. There were two loosely connected families who were yoemen but of the middle class. My part of the clan settled in Virginia, not as immigrants, but as land owners, land that had granted to them perhaps by Charles II. My part of the family moved about as land became farmed out, first to South Carolina, thence to Tennessee, and finally to the Mississppi delta. The "other" Fox's went to Philadelphia and a different destiny and religious orientation, largely the topic of the book. My family were slave owners until the War and destitute thereafter. A DNA mapping project, in part aided by Joseph M. Fox has found that the male heirs (including me) have a funny little SNP on their Y chromosome. There are some black members of the family for what ever reason. I rudely suggest that I have brothers that are also cousins. So who cares? If for no other reason, large scale mapping will introduce genetic disease tendencies. Creepy, Huh? But get into this with your family. It's cheap enough and it may be handy some day.
